Appointment of Christopher Deehy to the Board of Directors of the Canadian Irish Studies Foundation at Concordia University

January 16, 2017


Christopher Deehy has been appointed to the board of directors of the Canadian Irish Studies Foundation of Concordia University.

The Canadian Irish Studies Foundation was created to finance the study and teaching of Irish and Irish Canadian history and culture at Concordia University in Montreal. With the generous support of individuals, corporations, foundations and associations across Canada, as well as significant contributions from the governments of Canada, Quebec and Ireland, the Foundation has created an endowment fund that is used to provide joint financing, with Concordia University, of Canadian Irish Studies. The university has created a Centre which, now re-classified as the School of Canadian Irish Studies, is an academic unit within the Faculty of Arts and Science at Concordia and co-ordinates all aspects of the development of Canadian Irish Studies.
